Yesterday was a beautiful day, it was cool, but not cold, stormy clouds were around, but the weather was not a deterrent. We hiked up to the altar together. It was my wife’s birthday. Our hearts leapt as we approached the untouched altar we had not seen for many seasons. This may be the tenth time I’ve come here since I first built the altar almost twenty years ago.
Since that time I have had my Second Comforter experience and so has my wife. Mine occurred on January 18, 2016. At that time I was told the following:
I asked the Lord if we could experience our Second Comforter experience with Him together and was told that we could. It doesn’t happen often, but is acceptable by faith.
My dear wife and I had a plan. Today we would attempt to experience the Lord together.
We knelt across the altar from each other and took a turn praying and then began to pray silently. I asked her to let me know when she was with the Lord and ready for me to come to meet them.
I saw myself descending at the Garden. It is so beautiful. The golden light is everywhere. I stood on the path and looked again at the beautiful flowers as they swayed like they are dancing. I heard her voice, “I am at the bench on the path.”
I came to my wife. She sat on the bench talking to the Lord. The bench looked like white marble with decorative carvings. (Edit)
As soon as I arrived she stood and looked at the Savior, as both her and I stood before Him. She stood to my left as we faced the Savior. (I have edited this part, but it was beautiful.)
I said goodbye to the Lord, he smiled as I left. I opened my eyes.
We talked about what we had seen and both her and I had the same experience. She described the white bench, the way the Savior looked, how he had wrapped our hands and how she felt. It was exactly the same experience.
It was a beautiful experience we had together. We had done it, we came to the Lord together!
We stood next to our altar and looked out to the west. A beautiful rainbow was in the sky, like a reminder of our covenant with the Lord we made that day. Best birthday ever!
If you desire to receive the Second Comforter know that it is available to all who come to the Lord with a broken heart and a contrite spirit and desire to partake of this fruit. Remember, after Lehi partook of the fruit he desired his wife to also partake, and she did. They both partook together. Both men and women are equally privileged to receive such things; to experience it with my wife was the greatest blessing. If you desire this too, ask God, and He will lead you to the Tree of Life together.
